Moving Cards

As you have likely heard by now my family has relocated.  I am still trying to remember all the things that need an address change and there are always tons. I am one of those people who try to send out change of address cards to family and friends.  We have moved three times in the last 9 years and I have actually designed my cards for each move.  The past two moves the cards have been very simple but this last time I now consider myself a card maker so it was a bit more complex.  I used my Silhouette to cut out some cute houses which had four different cuts.  So this project ended up taking a bit longer than I had originally intended.

Moving Cards_Frosted ~ Catscrapbooking.comI decided on the Frosted paper pack (retired) as it provides a really great background paper.  I designed three styles with the three different patterns of the B&T paper.  I also used different twine depending on what I had on and.  I was quite pleased with the outcome.

Happy Crafting!

Stampers with Attitude ~ Flip Flap Hop

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!

The Stampers with an Attitude are excited to show how the Stampers With an Attitude use Flip Flaps in their artwork , so here we go.  If you have never used Flip Flaps by the time you are finished with this hop you will be a pro and ready to jump in!!  I love Flip Flaps because I often have a lot of photos I want to use on a layout but don’t want to make them so small or have the layout feel over crowded and the Flip Flaps help me to accomplish this.

If you have just come from MELINDA EVERITT’s Blog ~ If You Bling It then you are in the right place!

Growing up in New Orleans we did not really get snow very often.  I now live in the Pacific Northwest and love the fact we get snow.  I get so giddy every time it starts to flurry.   I am always taking lots of photos of the dogs in the snow and now my son.  I designed this layout which holds 12 photo ~ (10) 31/2″ x 5″ and (2) 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ using Flip Flaps.  Unfortunately flip Flaps and the page protectors make photographing the art work very difficult due to the reflection.  So you will get the idea as I have the layout shown just not in the actual page protectors.  I used a 6″x12″ Flip Flap to give me the additional 6 photos on my layout.

This is the layout with the Flip Flap closed.  I used the Frosted Paper pack with Champagne as the base.  On the base page I used my spay pen with Colonial White and Pearl paint to create the over-spray look and give a little shimmer.  The reindeer were cut using a Tim Holtz die and then randomly stamped with Twilight ink and one of the stamps from All Decked Out (retired stamp set).  The snowflake border was cut using my Silhouette as with the tittle.  The snowflake rosettes is also a Tim Holtz die.

This is the layout with the Flip Flap open showing the 6 additional photos.  Now I am just waiting for my photos to come.  I have been using Studio J to print my photos so they can be sized to the layout and then all I have to do is cut them out an pop them into my completed layouts.
